Vanessa Tomada

Framer – Owner

I'm Passionate to learn all there is to know about art supplies and art preservation. I formerly worked at a large art store, and brought many ideas and expectations when I joined the team in 2018. 

I'm primarily an oil painter and watercolour artist, but I've dabbled in just about everything and can help with most questions.


Lisa Mackay

Framer – (Former Owner)

“Framing your memories and creating beauty around your artwork is what we love to do.”

With many years of framing experience, Lisa has framed all sorts of unique and different items. She is sure to find a thoughtful and creative framing solution for any piece.

When not in the shop, there's a good chance she's off on a cruise or welcoming visitors to their new AirBnb "Spyglass Hideaway"


Marilyn Sadik

Framer – Customer Service

Experienced in just about all branches of art, she took lessons with professional artist Dick Van Den Hoogen.


She taught the acrylic pour classes at the shop in the past.

When she's not in the store, she's painting, sewing, knitting, gardening, and reading up a storm!

Look out for her in the Sunshine Coast Art Crawl!

Rose Sicard
